Definitely worth a watch.
16 September 2017 | by (Delft) – See all my reviews

Very powerful imagery of a (civil) war from the perspective of a little girl. The movie does a good job of building tension and delivering near the end. I can only highly recommend this movie although maybe not to the faint of heart: the minefield scene is especially (and applicably) horrid.
